    You can only use a FMIC that goes behind the grille for a frame cut because that type of bumper mounts in place of the stock IC.

    Dang truck dweebs. The FMIC is called "Front Mount" because there are several other locations for intercoolers in vehicles. The Subaru and MazdaSpeed cars mounted them on top of the engine. Some German cars mount them in the wheel well, behind headlight area. Some race cars mount them on each side of the radiator in their own little housing. The term derives itself because of these various locations, hence the "stock location" FMIC for the F150 series vs the full frontal radiator blocking version FMIC. Only turbo truck dweebs would make up different theories because, well truck dweebs. Please expand your perspective.

    I just wish Cobb had made a stock location FMIC earlier, so I would have bought theirs instead of Mishimoto. Actually Mishimoto claims slightly larger capacity than Cobb, likely due to the end tank designs. I'm not going to change now just for brand loyalty though. I've already installed the Mishimoto. I also kept the twin fans for low-speed, high-load operation. I would expect this new Cobb version to allow the fans to remain as well.

    @TwizzleStix I wish COBB came out with this sooner also.

    A couple reasons:

    I asked a Cobb protuner to tune my truck and was reluctant to do so with my CVF IC.

    Perhaps the quality of the Cobb IC is better considering the price.

    I wonder if Cobb will come out with 2 maps for the two IC options.

    Full on truck dweeb honesty. I initially thought the “F” in FMIC meant “factory” :emotions133: in the case of the Gen 2
